Momma has a family tradition — all of the aunts and uncles and cousins in her extended family bake a fruitcake every winter and send it to Nanni and Poppi to taste. This year Momma wants to make an extra special fruitcake — one that Nanni and Poppi will never forget! And so she enrolls Martin and Sylvia to help create a new recipe. They talk about all sorts of possibilities — when suddenly Sylvia begins to empty the pantry and refrigerator of everything sweet, nutty and fruity, declaring that they will use "All the Things". "All the things???" Momma asks. "All the Things," Sylvia replies — and so they set to work.
